11/10/14 Minutes: Calendar, Pronoun Buttons, Reimbursement

In attendance: Ashley (moderator), Barry, Jackson (secretary), Ramona, Sammi (moderator), Ty

Start time: 7:00 PM

1. Event Review – We had three events this week, and they all had great turnout. We hosted a discussion on gender issues in the local music scene on Wednesday. It sounds like there will be more work organized on this issue down the road. We also had the Sama/Bloth concert on Friday night; the performers raved about their time here and the audience they got to play for. We also had the showing of the documentary (A)sexual; while the film wasn’t the greatest, we had a great discussion about that afterward.

2. Upcoming Events – Asexuals of Lincoln are meeting here tomorrow night at 7. Trekkies For Humanism is coming up on Friday. There’s no special prep work needed for either of these.

We also have the How To Organize Protests event coming up on Saturday. Ashley is cramming a bit to lead the discussion, but she also encourage us to be doing some research to contribute to this as well.

3. Buttons – We are running low on our he/him and she/her pronoun buttons, and Ashley wants us to print and press some more. We agree to get five more pages of each printed up this week.
